We examine Podolsky’s electrodynamics, which is non-invariant under the usual duality transformation. We deduce a generalization of Hodge’s star duality, which leads to a dual gauge field and restores to a certain extent the dual symmetry. The model becomes fully dual symmetric asymptotically, when it reduces to the Maxwell theory. We argue that this strict dual symmetry directly implies the existence of the basic invariants of the electromagnetic fields.

Reduced Order Podolsky Model
We perform the canonical and path integral quantizations of a lower-order derivatives model describing Podolsky’s generalized electrodynamics. The physical content of the model shows an auxiliary
Debye screening in generalized quantum electrodynamics
In this work we study the Higgs mechanism and the Debye shielding for the Bopp–Podolsky theory of electrodynamics. We find that not only the massless sector of the Podolsky theory acquires a mass in
Dirichlet boundary condition for the Lee–Wick-like scalar model
Lee-Wick-like scalar model near a Dirichlet plate is considered in this work. The modified propagator for the scalar field due to the presence of a Dirichlet boundary is computed, and the interaction

TLDR
It is shown that in the regularized Maxwell theory, the point particle limit is finite and well defined, and the electromagnetic mass of a point particle enters the equation of motion in a form consistent with the special theory of relativity.
External sources in Lee-Wick theories
We investigate some peculiar aspects of the so-called Lee-Wick electrodynamics focusing on physical effects produced by the presence of sources for the vector field. The interactions between
THE SELF-FORCE OF A CHARGED PARTICLE IN CLASSICAL ELECTRODYNAMICS WITH A CUTOFF
We discuss, in the context of classical electrodynamics with a Lorentz invariant cutoff at short distances, the self-force acting on a point charged particle. It follows that the electromagnetic mass
Non-Abelian Yang-Mills analogue of classical electromagnetic duality.
TLDR
All equations of motion, including the standard Yang-Mills and Wong equations, are here derived from a ``universal`` principle, namely, the Wu-Yang criterion for monpoles, where interactions arise purely as a consequence of the topological definition of themore » monopole charge.
The Stueckelberg Field
In 1938, Stueckelberg introduced a scalar field which makes an Abelian gauge theory massive but preserves gauge invariance. The Stueckelberg mechanism is the introduction of new fields to reveal a
